A GREAT YACHT RACE
The First International Event on
Fresh Water in Years Won
by the "Canada."
HOKE SMITH'S LAST WEEK
The Chicago Express on the
Baltimore & Ohio was Fatal
Iy Wrecked, To-day.
BIG DAMAGE SUIT FILED
Toledo. Ohio, August 24. Th
treat yacht race between the "Venoe
dor." of Chicago, and the "Canada
of Toronto, the first international
event on fresh water in many years,
has brought to this city thousands
visitors from both sides of the border
The skipper of the Canada" is Com
modore Jarvis, of Toronto, while the
Venoedor" is commanded by Com
modore Berriman, who is also ber
principal owner. The judging com
mittee is composed of Oliver . Crom
veil, of Mew York; H. C. McLeod, of
the Bank of Nova Scotia, Chicago, and
E H. Ambrose, a prominent lawyer of
Hamilton, Ont.
xaobtmen, who have seen the per
formanoes of the "Vencedor", say that
they have never seen a better sailer,
but the general betting favors the
Canadian boat. The course is an ex.
oellent one, the starting point being
few miles from Turtle Light, thus giv
ing the boats twenty-four feet of water
The first race will be triangular and
the second a straightaway, while if a
third is necessary, it will be deoided
bv the toss of a dollar what form of
course shall be adopted.
The start in the race was made at
11 o'clock. At 10:30 a time gun was
fired and an American ensign hoisted
on the committee boat. Twenty
minutes later a preparatory gun was
fired and the ensign lowered. At 11
o'clock sharp the third gun was fired
as a signal to start.
80MB PARTICULARS OF THE EVENT,
Toledo, Ohio, August 24. The day
for the opening of the international
yacht races between the "Vencedor,'
of the Lincoln park yacht club, Chica
go, and the "Canada," of the Royal
Canadian yacht club, Toronto, broke
with a clear sky, warm air and a light
breeze. A stiff breeze would favor the
Amerloan boat, but the prospects are
that there will be nothing faster than
ten-mile-an-bour wind to blow the
yachts twice over a triangular course
of twelve miles, off Turtle lighthouse.
Burdened with a handicap of 4 min
utes which is allowed the "Canada,"
the conditions of the weather and the
time allowance, do not point to the
Chicago challenger crossing the finish
line first to-day. The match is to be
detid-id, with its accompanying cup
citizens, in the best two out of three
races.
, The Maumee river and the bay pre
seated a picturesque scene this morn
ing with the scores of private and club
yachts, big excursion boats, crowded
email crafts ut all classes, with colors
flying from every point, fore and aft,
mingled with the stars and stripes,
aad the dominion flag of Canada.
The yachts were towed for a start at
11 o'clock. It was reported that a
. protest bad been sent the judges by
Commodore Berriman.
.' the contesting crews.
At an early hour this morning the
crews of the "Vencedor" and
Canada" were officially announced.
Commodore Jarvis, of the Royal Cana
dian yacht club, insisted on a strict en
forcement of the rules prohibiting
more than two professionals on board
a,eh racer. In consequence Captain
Kid Wilds and Tom Crowley . were
ruled out of the "Venoedor",- crew.
They are old Lake Ontario sailors.
A ne crews are as iouows: vence
dor," Commodore E. C. Berriman,
Captain I. G. Barbour, John Connors,
Louis Bernard, Ralph Hoagland, Ed
Andrews, A. L. Johnson, R. D. hotter,
William Miller, Henry Miller. Miller
Brothers are boat builders in Roches
ter, N. Y. ; others of the orew come
from Chicago.

bulletins or the race.
, 12:40 p. m. The yachts started on
time, "Vencedor" slightly in the lead.
The wind is hardly strong enough to
fill the sails, but is freshening np now.
12:45 p. m The "Canada" is a
length behind the "Venoedor" At the
tart she blanketed . her. Both boats
bad main-sails, stay-sail-jib, flying-jib,
and both top-sails out. Wind three
miles an hour, with boats drifting to
tar-board. Prospects were at start
for a drifting raos throughout.
: The government weather bureau ob
server shewed a six-mile.anhour wind
on shore about the time for the yaohts
to cross to the starting line, with a
probability of a breeze two miles faster
on the course, bnt it is so land-locked
that the conditions may be reversed.
Th wind has been variable, all morn
ing, shifting frequently to all points.
At this rate, the race will be slow, and
the bureau's forecast is for continu
ance of light wind to-morrow.
.1 :10 p. m. The first leg to wind
ward ia the "Vencendor's canvas
seemed muob smaller than the Cana
da's." Both boats are drifting close
together on the starboard tack. The
press boat did not reach the course
nntd fifteen minutes after the rsce had
started,
3 p. CO. Both boat are still on the
first kg of the course. It has taken
them one hour and forty-fire minutes to
pne-balf of it, so light n the
wind. The race has developed into
drifting match. Unless the gale come
up, the race will not be finished within
the time limit, bK hours. The "Can
ada" Is nearlv a mile in the lead. Af
ter the start, she maneuvred for
time, in the rftrt to again blanket the
"Venoedor," but finally started off on
a hunt for a breez, while the " Ven
oodor" kept to the northeast. At 13:40,
both of the contestants got out their
spinnaker booms, but set no sail.
the weather conditions remain as at
present, the race will' undoubtedly be
deolared off. The "Canada" is caton-
ing all the wind there is.
2 :65 p. m. The first stake boat,
'Canada," rounded the stake boat at
1:13:40 and immediately put Up her
stay sail, pulled in ber balloon jib, and
shaped her course southeast on the
port track. She came about In two
minutes, the "Vencedor" a full' mile
behind. She put out her spinnaker,
but soon took it In and rounded stake
at 1:40 ;65. 27:16 behind' the
"Canada". The wind was light, how,
ever, both boats drifting, which makes
the "Venoedor" safe on the time limit,
